monitoring the crisis, moving the support where it's needed. even republican governor chris christie has praised the president over his attention to the crisis. this kind of free publicity is terrific. and it may sway some of the people to see the president as that kind of hands on crisis management kind of guy. so you know, sandy will have an impact on the election, we just don't know who will benefit or who will suffer more. but she's an incomparable october surprise. >> thank you for your insight. one week from tonight, the presidential election. if you're voting by mail, you may need more stamps than you think. rates vary from county to county, sometimes even city to city depending how big your ballot is. jodi hernandez has the inside information that the post office doesn't want to share. >> i've never missed voting. never. >> reporter: 70-year-old barbara carpenter cherishes her right to vote. making sure she understands everything on the ballot. >> for what african-americans have gone through in this country, to get a chance to vote, that all of us should take voting very seriousl

, it was new jersey that took the direct hit from this storm. the governor of that state, chris christie is holding a news conference right now bringing reporters up to speed on the damage. we had the chance to talk to governor christie a little bit earlier this morning. i started by asking him about the state of his state. >> we have over 2.4 million people without power across the state. we've had flooding in the new york bay areas, rareton bay. new jersey area is 59% without power. it all came from the tidal surge that came through raredon bay and new york bay, and the same thing affecting new york city, and we have a battered, battered new jersey shore that i hope to tour a little later on today, but i think the losses are going to be almost incalculable. >> i was watching reporters all afternoon and evening from long branch and point pleasant beach and atlantic city, and do you have a lot of people that you think you're going to have to go out and account for this morning? search and rescue missions to find people that you haven't heard from? >> we are in the midst of search and res
christie has closed 130 miles of highway. so, new jersey residents here, thousands of them without power, but many glad it's coming earlier than expected, hunkering down and hoping the worse will pass shortly. >> thank you very much. we'll be checking back. >> we're watching that picture very carefully of that high rise that's been under construction for several months in midtown manhattan. eventually going to be 90 stories high. and that crane that sits atop it, you shouldn't see that portion dangling that's sitting parallel to the building itself. that has been a partial collapse of that crane there. our robert frank is on the phone. you've covered that high rise on wealth report. it's been under construction for a while. what can you tell us? >> reporter: as you mentioned, this is a very high-profile building to begin with. 90 stories tall. several of the penthouses have sold for more than $90 million apiece. so, we have several billionaires living in this building. the reason it's already been under scrutiny is there getting some tax breaks for buyers as well as the developer, origin
or more of those deaths in mennen township, 30 miles west of new york city. governor chris christie of new jersey, over and over reported -- repeatedly tried to tell people to get out of that area. >> i'm very disappointed in the fact that some decided to disregard my instruction, my order. i'm concerned it might lead to the loss of life. >> tonight reports of homes flooded under several feet of water and we've seen floodwaters, atlantic city where ali velshi was all night. several rescues under way, including people stranded in their cars, trying to get away from all of this. >> i'm scared to death. so many people are going to die today. >> authorities are working to get people from west atlantic city. hundreds of them out of the area where waters are dangerously high. >> let's bring in senior medical correspondent, elizabeth cohen. she has information on the evacuation of the nyu medical center. i understand that many have been evacuated because they lost power, generator failed, is that the story? >> reporter: that is basically the story. they are in the middle of evacuating 260 patient
of the century. matt? >> al roquener point pleasant beach, new jersey. al, thank you very much. chris christie is the governor of that state of new jersey. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> you guys took a direct hit, and i know you'll probably not know the extent of the damage until daylight and you get to see the areas by ground and by air, but based on the reports you've been getting overnight, what's the state of your state? >> it's a major disaster, matt. we have over 2.4 million people without power across the state. we've had flooding in the raritan bay and newark area. the city of newark is 95% without power due to substation flooding. all that came from the tidal surge that came up from the storm through raritan bay and newark bay, the same thing you see affecting new york city, and we have a battered, battered new jersey shore that i hope to tour a little bit later on today, but i think the losses are going to be almost incalculable. >> yeah. i was watching reports all afternoon and evening, governor, from long branch and point pleasant beach and atlantic city, and do yo
the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had building up for romney. yohat. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours, you might get an additional point or two
and yesterday governor chris christie, who is certainly a straight talker, had these dire words of advice for his constituents. >> we want everybody to stay off the roads. again, you know, we can't emphasize this enough, don't try to go out there and be hero or act as if there's nothing going on here. something is happening. it's important. and we need to have you stay inside. >> so that's important advice because even if you don't live along the coastline the winds are going to be such that trees are going to come down. if you live in an area that has a lot of trees stay indoors and get down from the upper areas of your home to a lower entire yore room, and even sky scrapers, you know, soledad. you go up 30 floors in elevation, and that increases the winds by one category in hurricane strength. you're going to be feeling it across the high rises of manhattan, not to mention at the lower levels the storm surge is going to be of historic proportions. likely to be greater than irene. high tide across many of the beaches, communities, happening in the next couple of hours. and again tonight
to create among christie's and we need to be supportive of those treat it is a balance. one of the challenges we have right now in the middle east, iran. iran is getting close to having nuclear capabilities. from the foreign policy standpoint, we have to support the democracy that we have with israel there, and do what we can to prevent iran from having nuclear capabilities. the next step is their ability to support terrorists, their ability now with technology to move the nuclear bombs easily around the world. as relates to the foreign policy, we need to again make sure america's interests are kept first, but we need to make sure that we're not putting our country at risk, that these terrorist countries that have a check and balance on them, if you will. that should be what drives our foreign policy. >> i cannot state is clearly enough. we cannot be a nation builder of every nation. we have got to start building our nation at home, and that is the strongest kind of sick tree we can have, which is economic security, making sure we are growing our middle-class, and when we lo
